Why the light weight 6.5? Is it geared more towards the Grendel crowd? Any plans for a 140g?
The 6.5mm 129 gr ALR is what they could get to stabilize. Maybe a heavier weight in the future.

Once the initial line of ALR bullets is out, they will consider others. I would think the .338 300 gr ALR with a BC of .8 would be in the cards.

So they stuck with what would work in "standard" twist rates?

I would agree that would be the best place to start this line...and see where it leads from there.

They should do a lighter ALR in .338 too. 225-250gr. Out to 1000yds or so there is no real reason to shoot a 300gr bullet.

Stabilize in what twist? Are they tailoring to factory twist rates?

Roger that. I am skeptical of a 0.730 BC for the .308 210 grain ALR, with Berger's 210 VLD and 215 Hybrid having advertised G1 BCs of 0.631 and 0.696, respectively.

What a little market competition won't do to improve the options for LRH bullets? Thanks Berger for prodding the competition.

Agreed!!! As many people that shoot the 338's for long range hunting, they would be nuts not to offer a few differen't weights for them.
